Christmas Day and Boxing Day - Yeah!!

Now my memory may be faulty, but I do think this is the first Christmas I've celebrated since I was a Mom that no Kids were with us.
Thank goodness for the Phone!!
With that handy invention and having Richard and Arlene with us it felt like our whole family was together.

It seemed like Arlene and Richard arrived to an igloo instead of a yurt!

Setting the Festive Table.

Thank you Grace and Albert for the lovely flora arrangement!!!

Lights please!

Of course I forgot to take any photos once the meal was on the table. sigh.
I cooked the entire meal from one cookbook, my birthday present.
Everything turned out wonderfully and was very easy and fun to make.
If you want a new cookbook I highly recommend this one:
"Around My French Table" by Doris Greenspan
Great photos and clear instructions and the food is amazing!

Bandida fell asleep waiting for Santa.

Keith loves his new hand made pajama bottoms from Alyssa the Seamstress!
Later on Christmas Day we four drove up river to Potato Creek for a little snow shoeing.
Naturally we all forgot our cameras.
But it was a perfect outing for Christmas Day.
I think Keith & I will do some more snow shoeing trips this winter.

We hope Everyone is Staying Warm!

Nice pictures. Your table was beautiful! No white Christmases around here - just a nice wet one. Miss you April plus happy belated birthday.
